AEG’s vice president of energy and environment, John Marler, will join the board of directors of the Green Sports Alliance (GSA).

The GSA is the leader in leveraging the market influence of sports to promote environmentally sustainable practices.

“I am honored to represent AEG, a founding partner of the Green Sports Alliance, as a member of the board to further GSA’s mission of leveraging the power of sports to protect the environment,” said Marler. “I look forward to working with the other distinguished directors to further the impact of sustainable practices within the sports industry to address global environmental issues.”

Under Marler’s leadership, AEG recently adopted a new greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal to achieve zero emissions by 2050, based on the 2018, “Global Warming of 1.5 degrees Celsius” report from the United Nations’ (UN) Interngovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The company also recently pledged its support to the UN’s Sports for Climate Action Framework through its various sports entities: LA Kings, LA Galaxy, Eisbären Berlin and Ontario Reign, Amgen Tour of California – California’s premiere bike race on the UCI World Tour and USA Cycling Professional Tour – and AEG Rugby.

“John brings a wealth of experience from a large international portfolio of industry leading sports and entertainment venues and we are thrilled to have him as the newest member of our Board,” said Roger McClendon, executive director of the Green Sports Alliance. “From the very beginning, AEG has been a strong supporter of the Green Sports Alliance and industry leader in establishing groundbreaking sustainability initiatives and we look forward to working together to advance our industry and use the cultural and market influence of sports to drive a more prosperous and sustainable future.”

In his current role as vice president of energy and environment, Marler oversees AEG’s industry-leading corporate sustainability program, AEG 1EARTH, as well as AEG Energy Services, AEG’s corporate energy management program. Prior to joining AEG in 2013, Marler focused on renewable and alternative energy contracts and smart grid research and development at Southern California Edison. Prior to joining the Edison team, Marler practiced law for four years as an attorney in New York, where he focused on commercial litigation and business transactions. He currently serves on the board of directors of GRID Alternatives Greater Los Angeles.
